Darn, I missed Mercator's birthday. He was 500 years old yesterday; OK, so I know he's dead but you get the gist. Lots of celebrations are going on - a Mercator Revisited conference in Belgium, an exhibition in New York (my poor, poor family - guess where we're spending a week in the summer...guess where I'll be dragging them to), Slovenia, Mercator's blog and you can even buy a board game.
I could go on but it's late and I've been distracting myself all evening planning my weekend.
And, yes, the yellow stickies really are trig pillar sites. Sadly I won't get to half of them but it was fun looking.
